2023.06.09 16:12 rollersky Why left-wingers should be in favour of Freedom of speech

An actor everybody is pretty much somewhat familiar with, Rowan Atkinson that plays Mr Bean recently made an about 10 minute press release speech and statement. It was directly concerning the freedom of the people of the United Kingdom to merely express themselves, to perform the very human act of communicating and sharing. https://youtu.be/xUezfuy8Qpc
The fact that the U.K is unfortunately by law a tyrannical state that dishes out criminal punishment to anyone who says anything anyone finds offensive, no literally they actually have laws that get you arrested for posting normal song lyrics and other mundane normal usage posts. It's from a recent yet slightly older law from 25 years ago, and it enables anyone to be charged with hate speech for saying or since the advent of social media posting anything anyone ever finds offensive.
I wish it were otherwise but unfortunately these authoritarian tyrannical laws are also present... in Australia and you have probably forgotten but they were on full display in Australia in 2019... when the Pharmaceutical companies became the wealthiest and most profitable companies on Earth... the same companies that sponsor Political Parties,... and Television advertisements,... Social Media companies (like the one your on now) and literally run the tests and produce all medical scientific papers (studies, theories, hospitals, physicians on payroll, fund entire hospitals and livelihoods... etc. etc.) The best example I can remember of the absolute tyranny Australia was under is a case whereby a pregnant women in Victoria was arrested for writing on a Facebook post that she was against lockdowns and supported the protests against them... the Police came and arrested her... for 'Hate Speech'... it luckily enough got picked up media companies (TV stories and articles). Luckily. So the police, after dragging this pregnant woman kicking and screaming out of her apartment (not exactly literally) let her go without charge. She was lucky. Very very lucky. And there is no way she should have had to have been 'lucky' for merely making a post on Facebook.
America simply does not have this problem as written into the very constitution as the 1st Amendment to their constitution by the founding fathers in all of their wisdom, intelligence, good faith and if your religious like they where, filled with divine enlightenment wrote it such that the Government in America has no ability to write any law to restrict people's rights to express themselves (Freedom of Speech), restrict the press (because back then they lacked smart phones, social media and all modern technology, which should be obvious but perhaps it is not and is difficult for people today to even begin to imagine life back then despite it being very loosely similar to today's world) and finallu restrict people's religious freedoms (written in reverse order to this because they were all wise God loving, humble, noble and brave men.
America's 1st Amendment is the only Freedom of Speech law written into its very constitution in the entire world, it is the reason that America is referred to as 'Land of the Free' and the second part of that phrase, 'Home of the Brave.'. As for protests, peaceful assembly had always been constitutionally protected, not violent assembly so riots and revolution is still very much illegal and is met with lethal counter force every time. [As a side note, if peaceful assembly fails to prevent America becoming a Tryrannical State, then the 2nd Amendment is the fail-safe. As the wisdom of the founding fathers literally argued and intendeded]
Australia does not have that phrase and frankly I feel that every Australian that knows that, feels a deep unspoken, subconscious shame over that fact and far more importantly that all Australians simply do not have the constitutional right to even speak their minds freely, as every human being alive desires.
As Rowan Atkinson stated 'Hate Speech' is not real. It is a term used to silence, censor and remove power from whomever those in power disagree and dislike or are offended by. There are seemingly endless examples from history of the evil deeds of enactment of those disliked by existing powers for example, Galileo (ostracised and persecuted by the church and all religious folk for merely stating he believed that the sun was the center of the Galaxy and not the Earth), Nikola Tesla (defamed by the work of Tomas Edison and countless people trying to claim his inventions as their own by way of patent theft and lies for the purpose of advertising like don't by an American organisation NPR over the discovery of radio), (Jesus Christ himself by his crucifixion by my Ancestors, the Romans) and as the last example, the NAZI's by locking up any intellectuals that disagreed or dared critisize any of their doctrine and propoganda, their torture of anyone condemned for death by way of countless sadistic and grotesque torture methods, and some though quite few, for scientific discovery purposes, their burning of the books followed in time by bodies, and lastly their brutal slaughter of the Jews, no evidence of wrongs but only stirring words and speeches from their beloved demagogue, Adolf Hitler and gigantic amounts of absolute propoganda distributed to the masses, orchestrated by NAZI Propoganda Chief Joseph Goebbels and his team. (Which every highschool student should have, though potentially didn't, have already learned from Highschool History class, at least in every Public School, Private Schools may be permitted a different curriculum.) Offensive caused by speech has only 1 solution. More Free speech, Rowan Atkinson a famous actor that has probably more wealth than this entire subreddit conveyed this message, and it would seem as an absolute truth as far as I can tell.
I have written this in hopes of sparking and pasing wisdom and knowledge into whoever needs to have read this. And hopefully you will pass this type of message on yourself from now on. Australia needs the Right of Freedom of Speech written into its very constitution. As demonstrated during COVID19 it needed it years ago but now even more than ever.
And to those that would say it will do nothing but allow mass disinformation, manipulation and mislead people, I would say this, history has proven you absolutely dead wrong on that statement and sentiment, the only solution to offense from speech is more Free Speech and if you silence, censor or try more modern trends of the same kind known as deplatforming or cancelling, then all you do, all you achieve, everything you are trying to stop will only be made stronger, more resilient and more popular then ever before. As examples, take Jesus Christ, he has the Roman equivalent of being hung drawn and quartered, he was crucified, publicly executed like a lamb to the slaughter to send a message of absolute obedience being required to the rest of the herd. Yet because of that Christianity exploded and has been far more viral than COVID19 or any viral video has ever been to date. And for modern times look at Tucker Carlson, deplatformed by pressure from Pharmaceutical companies, lawsuits from shitty voting machine companies and pathologically idealogically fanatic ex employees in lawsuits. Tucker Carlsons show on Fox was the most popular show on Fox News and it drew in about 2 million people every night to watch it... after he was fired... is now getting 35+ million on the regular after he started up on Twitter. I do so imagine that actuall that will be an understatement in the coming future as currently he's on his 2nd episode ever. The 'Streisand Effect' in full unbridled, unstoppable force.
Every Australian deserves the right to express themselves freely, meaning free of all Government persecution and all possible Government and legal persecution. This is and has always been a left wing idea, as the rule of Tyrants; Dictators, kings Pharaohs, Caesar's, Shoguns, Kahns, Lords, Nobles Knights and Emperors have always, always been majority perpetuated by people with conservative temperaments, whereas free thinkers, creative and imaginative people are the minority of people perpetuating the rule of Tyrants.
We here in Australia critisize China for authoritarianism and tyranny when there is weakness in our own ranks. 'Those in glass houses should not throw stones' - some famous person', 'never lay cannonfire on your enemy with a glass cannon' -me. Western countries, especially our home Australians true colours, true laws and beliefs of of people were broadcaster for the world to see during covid. And they paint a very dark authoritarian picture of our nation to the world, something China is more than smart enough to take advantage of... and much to our chagrin they are and have been since Covid ended for us. Chinese propoganda, their Television Channels, all Chinese State OWNED... all of them constantly bring up how Australia, England and America all were even worse if not just as bad as China was during Covid19, and as the best and most convincing propoganda always is... its harrowingly mostly true. (Only, partly mostly thankfully) but domestic Chinese TV isn't the most important propoganda outlet taking the easy win by using our sins in their propoganda... no, that would be the Confucius Institute in Australian Universities. China's unelected ruling communist party (communist in name only these days, just a full bull authoritarian tyranny is their ideology nowadays) main propoganda outlet in Australia is a Chinese University group called the Confucius Institute (I could be wrong about the name and I've spent too long writing this to be bothered to look it up). They target young, impressionable Chinese men and women when they are studying abroad in Australia's universities, our most popular young adult Chinese attraction, I dare say, maybe even 'Global young adult Asian attraction' as I once met a man from Tibet who said exactly that in a course I had to take for my construction job (white card). The Confucius Institute goal is promote CCP propoganda via demonising the way Australia and all Western countries are so that as few young people ever believe in the ideals of Democracy and want to return to China, such that the CCP can perpetuate its tyrannical rule over China forever. Idealogically brainwash 'loose ends' - Mafia Terminology if you understand. They thanks to what happened to Australia under the Lib/Nats Coalition 2019 to late 2022 they distribute and spread half truths about Australia and countless other lies about every part and aspect of life in Australia as well as pay members of their organisation to organise pro China protests, (sign holders and chanters) in Australian Universities, footage of this circulated sparsely in Australian media and articles during 2014-2018 roughly though probably a bit before too. They actively seek out and target specifically ethnically Chinese and often try to emotionally blackmail them, incite fear into them, speak exclusively their propoganda to then and rarely but almost certainly literally blackmail them using the threat of violence, torture and death of their families back in China. Naturally there's no direct evidence of that claim except for Chinese Father and Husband in England that was blackmailed (husband of high ranking shipping Port official wife) they abducted his wife and child and forced the wife read a script to the husband over the phone (utilised emotional and physical blackmail and just directly veiled and unveiled threats, I recommend you look up interviews from the husband) and if you look up the articles of the Confucius Institute from IDK 2011-2018 and have the ability to interpret from what the articles found you can tell the Confucius Institute, only has 1 purpose, to try and perpetuate the CCP's rule of China and stop and protest against their rule, specifically stopping Tiananmen Square type protests from ever happening again. The Tianamen Square Massacre was a global well known proverbial black eye to China that severely hampered every nation's diplomatic relations with China for close to half a century, and the CCP didn't like that as even Tyrants love swimming in money, also the CCP loves stealing technology through trade espionage, China's MAG Lev trains and their entire car industry is built off stolen technology from Western companies dumb enough to deal with companies owned by the CCP. Naturally the Chinese who have been or are being 'convinced' by the Confucius Institute are always the biggest promoters of Anti Freedom ideas, especially the death of Freedom of Speech via hate speech crime laws such as: incitement of violence laws (Victoria mainly), offensive Tweets, Facebook Posts, Instagram Posts,,, Goddamn Reddit posts all hopefully being made illegal and the Liberals God awful rich persons almost exclusive digital world referee, The new E-Safety Commisioner. And like all the God awful Tyrant Commissioner's from TV shows and books if the E-Safety commisoner ever... EVER gets in the hands of the Liberals again it will be used against the normal people of Australia to beat the collective will of normal free thinking Australian's to the ground if not to death. Only complete dumbass Liberal Supporters usually dumb beer drinking sky news watchers (usually fossils) and Young Adult Chinese University Students support ANY of the laws and speech referees I just mentioned.
Again please war h the video I linked at the tiop and if the Politcal State of the U.K interests you for whatever reason then I recommend: Count Dankular (his second channel) the first person in Scottish History tried and found guilty of 'Hate Speech'... from a freakin comedy video. Where he's mocking the very thing they charged him for supporting [funny pug salute video as a direct hint]), Jonathan Pie (excellent wit, fantastic satirist and insult wordsmith wizard, also very yelly, I like him) and lastly Jordan Shanks himself, the namesake of this subreddit, FriendlyJordies. Whenever he actually gets round to covering the U.K his analysis is excellent.
Also a guy from YouTube channel Sargon of Akkad though... fair warning, his videos are really boring but he is quite very articulate.
All Australians deserve the Right of Freedom of Speech. And unfortunately, on Reddit in particular I see far too many Tyrannical Speech Law sympathisers which I personally find truly disgusting and as much as I hate the authoritarian ideas you spout, I will defend your right to say and spread them. If your a real FriendlyJordies fan or agree with his ideas and rhetoric than I already know you support all Australians Right of 'Free Speech'.

2023.06.09 16:12 MackiDee83 I struggle to find the difference between a toxic person and someone who simply doesn't understand

I have a coworkefriend that I am truly divided on how to approach our friendship. We'll call her L for ease! L has allergies that tend to be exasperated by the environment we work in, leading to her having a bad mood fairly often. Generally, the job isn't a great place for her as the travel is long, she doesn't get along with other coworkers, as well as other things. Everyone struggles to work with her and I'm really the only one who can handle her, and it definitely shows in the team. L has told me before that she has ADHD and I've noticed lots of things like she doesn't pick up immediately when someone is done with a topic, she hyperfixates 24/7 and has a lot of demands that she doesn't understand how they are out of the control of the team (example, she brings up how stressful the travel is, then gets upset that we can't do anything to help). She has said and done some very hurtful/ignorant things and I've corrected her (example, "A can't be ADHD, he gets good grades") but she doesn't seem to care when she is wrong. I am patient with her and I don't push aside her problems with stress and allergies, ect but I don't join the conversation when she tries to have me give negative opinions about team members she knows I consider good friends. I'm not planning on changing my behaviour towards L, but it makes me consider all the other times I've gotten myself entwined with a toxic person and I'm wondering- is there a way to tell the difference? (Mostly rhetorical question, just a thought!) Thanks for reading ❤️

2023.06.09 16:11 Olibr_Resourcing_LTD Exploring the Metaverse: A Comprehensive Guide to the Digital Universe

Exploring the Metaverse: A Comprehensive Guide to the Digital Universe


The concept of the metaverse has been gaining significant attention lately, fueled by advancements in technology and a growing interest in virtual worlds. It promises a future where people can immerse themselves in a shared digital universe, blurring the line between the physical and virtual realities. In this guide, we will explore the metaverse, understand its definition, delve into its potential applications, and discuss the implications it holds for individuals and society as a whole.
What is the Metaverse? The metaverse refers to a virtual universe or collective virtual shared space that encompasses a combination of augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and the internet. It is an interconnected network of virtual worlds, enabling users to interact with each other and computer-generated environments in real-time. Unlike traditional online platforms, the metaverse aims to create a seamless and immersive experience that simulates the physical world.


Key Elements of the Metaverse

  1. Shared Virtual Spaces: The metaverse consists of virtual environments where users can interact with one another, engage in activities, and explore a digital world filled with virtual objects, buildings, and landscapes.
  2. Persistent Experience: Unlike temporary online experiences, the metaverse offers a persistent and continuous digital existence, where users can create, own, and customize their virtual identities, assets, and properties.
  3. Real-Time Interactions: Users can communicate, collaborate, and engage with others in real-time, fostering social connections and enabling shared experiences within the metaverse.
  4. Multimodal Interfaces: The metaverse supports various input and output interfaces, such as VR headsets, AR glasses, haptic feedback devices, and voice recognition, to enhance immersion and interaction within the virtual world.

Potential Applications of the Metaverse

  1. Social Interaction: The metaverse has the potential to revolutionize social interactions by providing a platform for people to connect, socialize, and collaborate regardless of physical location. It can create new opportunities for virtual gatherings, events, and shared experiences.
  2. Gaming and Entertainment: Virtual worlds within the metaverse offer vast opportunities for immersive gaming experiences, where players can explore, compete, and create their own narratives. It can also revolutionize the entertainment industry by enabling interactive storytelling and virtual performances.
  3. Education and Training: The metaverse can transform the way we learn and acquire skills by providing interactive and immersive educational experiences. It allows for simulations, virtual classrooms, and hands-on training in various fields.
  4. Business and Commerce: The metaverse holds potential for new business models and virtual economies. It can enable virtual marketplaces, virtual real estate, and digital asset ownership, creating opportunities for entrepreneurship, commerce, and digital art.

Implications and Challenges of the Metaverse

  1. Privacy and Security Concerns: As the metaverse involves users interacting and sharing personal information within a digital environment, privacy and security become major concerns. Safeguarding personal data, protecting against cyber threats, and ensuring user consent is essential to maintain trust and confidence in the metaverse.
  2. Ethical Considerations: The metaverse raises ethical questions regarding user consent, digital identity, and virtual experiences. Issues such as virtual harassment, manipulation, and the potential for addiction need to be addressed to ensure a safe and inclusive environment for all users.
  3. Digital Divide and Accessibility: Access to the metaverse should not be limited to a privileged few. Bridging the digital divide and ensuring accessibility for individuals with disabilities or limited resources is crucial. Efforts must be made to provide affordable devices, reliable internet connectivity, and inclusive design principles to enable equitable participation in the metaverse.
  4. Intellectual Property and Ownership: With the metaverse facilitating the creation and trade of virtual assets, the question of intellectual property rights and ownership becomes complex. Establishing clear rules and frameworks for virtual property, copyright, and digital rights management is necessary to protect creators and users in the metaverse.
  5. Social Impact and Behavioral Changes: The metaverse has the potential to reshape social dynamics and behavior. It may impact real-world interactions, relationships, and even mental health. Striking a balance between virtual and physical experiences, promoting healthy engagement, and understanding the long-term social impact of the metaverse are critical considerations.
  6. Regulatory and Legal Frameworks: The rapid development of the metaverse raises challenges in terms of regulatory frameworks and legal jurisdictions. Defining laws, regulations, and policies to govern virtual environments, virtual transactions, and user interactions is crucial to establish a safe and fair metaverse ecosystem.
  7. Technical Challenges: Building and maintaining the infrastructure required for the metaverse is a significant technical challenge. Achieving seamless interoperability, handling large-scale virtual environments, and ensuring consistent user experiences across devices and platforms require continuous innovation and collaboration.
  8. Environmental Impact: The metaverse, like any other digital ecosystem, consumes energy and resources. As the metaverse grows, sustainability considerations become important to minimize its carbon footprint and environmental impact. Finding ways to optimize energy usage and adopting eco-friendly practices will be necessary.

Future of Metaverse

The future of the metaverse holds tremendous potential and is expected to have a significant impact on various aspects of our lives. Here are some key possibilities for the future of the metaverse:
  1. Enhanced Virtual Experiences: As technology continues to advance, the metaverse will offer increasingly immersive and realistic virtual experiences. With the integration of virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and haptic feedback, users will be able to interact with the metaverse in more lifelike ways, blurring the line between the physical and digital worlds.
  2. Collaborative Workspaces: The metaverse has the potential to revolutionize remote work and collaboration. Virtual offices and workspaces within the metaverse can provide a seamless environment for distributed teams to collaborate, brainstorm ideas, and hold virtual meetings, fostering productivity and creativity.
  3. Social and Cultural Impact: The metaverse can reshape social interactions, enabling people to connect and engage with others globally. It will foster new forms of socialization, entertainment, and shared experiences, transforming how we communicate, build relationships, and consume media.
  4. Education and Training: The metaverse can revolutionize education and training by providing immersive and interactive learning experiences. Virtual classrooms, simulations, and personalized learning environments can enhance education accessibility, engagement, and effectiveness.
  5. Economic Opportunities: The metaverse can create new economic models and opportunities. Virtual marketplaces, digital assets, and virtual currencies can enable entrepreneurship, virtual commerce, and the monetization of creative skills, offering new avenues for employment and revenue generation.
  6. Healthcare and Therapy: The metaverse holds potential for healthcare applications, including virtual medical consultations, therapy sessions, and remote healthcare monitoring. It can expand access to healthcare services, especially for those in remote areas or with limited mobility.
  7. Sustainability and Environmental Impact: The metaverse can contribute to sustainability efforts by reducing the need for physical travel and infrastructure. Virtual events, meetings, and experiences can help reduce carbon emissions, resource consumption, and environmental impact.
  8. Interconnected Metaverses: As the concept of the metaverse evolves, interconnected metaverses could emerge, allowing users to seamlessly transition between different virtual worlds or platforms. This would enhance the scope and possibilities of the metaverse, creating a more expansive and interconnected digital universe.


The metaverse represents a transformative vision of a shared digital universe that combines augmented and virtual realities with the power of the internet. It offers immersive experiences, social interactions, and endless possibilities for gaming, education, business, and more. As technology continues to advance, the metaverse is likely to become an integral part of our future digital landscape. However, it is important to approach its development and implementation thoughtfully, considering the ethical, social, and practical implications it presents. The journey toward the metaverse has just begun, and we can expect an exciting future where the lines between physical and virtual realities blur, giving rise to a new era of interconnected digital experiences.

2023.06.09 16:10 Kenzielauren8 In a really tough spot

Hey guys, my husband (31) was diagnosed bipolar last year and started on lithium. He had been doing a little better. Recently he’s been cycling frequently…we’ve seen many psych doctors to adjust meds and offer advice but nothing seems to help. He has no career and cannot stick with anything. Currently he’s not working so I’m handling all the bills and most times the house work. We have no kids but I’m exhausted and so very sad. I just want some advice or a place to vent. I am so tired of crying and feeling hopeless. I’ve actually considered leaving which I feel like makes me a bad person. Thanks for listening to me vent for a minute.

2023.06.09 16:10 throwawaytinyllama Opening up my relationship questions

Me (26f) and my partner (27m) have been together for 6/7 years now. I’ve the last few years I have noticed my libido dropping massively but when another person sparks my interest and flirts with me my sex drive shoots up and I generally have a better time with my partner.
Anyway, I have come to realise I am interested in an open relationship and I think if I were enjoying the company of other people I would be more aroused regularly and have more sex with my partner. The sex I have with my partner is very loving, comfortable, tender, and he knows me inside and out. But there are certain things we don’t do together, rough play etc because it’s not his bag. I would love to experience that with someone else.
My partner struggles to understand this because for him, I am enough. Which I struggle to understand because for example, he loves to give oral and I hate receiving it. I always feel a pressure to allow this to happen but if he had someone else to do this with I wouldn’t feel that pressure. (But what he wants or doesn’t want to do is his prerogative, I am happy if he does or does not want to have another partner)
Throughout our discussions his main concerns are
  1. What if I leave him for someone else. Which I can’t imagine, I have never met anyone in this entire world quite as incredible as him. How can I ease this feeling?
  2. What if he can’t get over the thought of me being with another person? I would say this is the biggest one, I think he sees it as dirty. Does anyone have any reading suggestions or advice on handling this?
We’ve been discussing this for two or three days now and we’ve been brutally honest with each other which has felt amazing and sort of arousing. I really hope we can work this out.

2023.06.09 16:10 SpiceCake68 An important note regarding Reddit in general and r/pocketplanes in particular; please read this

Stolen from cars:
In the 1970s in the United States there grew an idea: Simply put, that people could help other people by building a decent place to live, at no profit for the builders. This idea grew from a charitable concept into a movement that would grow far past its original hopes and expectations. By the late 1970s this idea had expanded; today, Habitat for Humanity operates in every state in the USA but also in over a third of the countries in the world.
Habitat for Humanity volunteers do not work for wages. They volunteer their time to create something better than existed before; they often provide their own tools to make construction more efficient and safer for themselves and all around. The Habitat fund provides materials and the volunteers do the rest, creating and improving spaces for people to live in and enjoy. Without the volunteers, Habitat for Humanity could simply and fundamentally not exist. As such, the volunteers are treated with dignity and respect; they create wonderful things for strangers for no other reason than the love of so doing.
In the mid-2000s, Reddit was created. Reddit, Inc. has provided the framework and material for the site to survive, and a group of volunteer moderators has created tools and volunteered time to build spaces for people to occupy and enjoy. For the past 18 years this has been successful: Volunteers have created and curated spaces, and users have created content and everything that has filled those spaces.
On May 31 of this year, Reddit unilaterally announced that it was changing the pricing structure for all third-party applications using its servers and, in order for apps like Apollo, Bacon Reader, or RiF is Fun to continue to function, they would be required to pay Reddit, Inc. some tens of millions of dollars per year effective 30 days hence. The net effect of this is that Reddit plans on ending the ability for ALL third-party applications to function. This will mean destroying the ability of users to interact with the site on their favorite platforms. This will affect not only moderators but also every user who chooses to use a third-party application to view the site; THIS DIRECTLY AFFECTS YOU.
Habitat for Humanity could not function without its volunteers and the tools and skills they bring to the table; Reddit cannot function without its volunteer moderators and users and the tools and skills they bring to the platform.
Reddit is making these changes solely to serve you more advertisements, facilitate more spam, and track and sell your personal user data to other marketers and platforms. This has no benefit to the user, but we have seen this pattern before with other platforms. The animosity of Reddit towards third-party app developers, moderator staff, and users alike is telling and it does not bode well for the future of the platform. Reddit's actions are bad for everyone.
If Habitat for Humanity volunteers were treated thusly they would, sadly, pack their tools and move on and think at least of the good they have managed to do for people. As volunteers for Reddit, we are now preparing to pack our tools and move on. Reddit's clear avarice and contempt for the people who have spent millions of hours for free building and populating their communities is coming to a head.
The takeaway from this:
In protest, this will be closing all access as of June 12 and will be dark through June 14, perhaps longer. The mod staff is unwilling to continue to work with restricted functionality and in the face of such shocking disregard from Reddit, who has effectively been our pro bono client for the entirety of the site's existence. During this time you will not be able to read, comment, or participate in the subreddit at all. This is not something the mod staff does lightly: This is done after many hours of discussion recently, and multiple years of discussion more broadly. We do not want to have to this, and it is with great reticence that we take this action. We love what we have built: This is the Internet's largest automotive forum by several multiples. We love the discussion here, and we are all invested in not only the subreddit but also the content therein. We're all enthusiasts first and moderators second, and shuttering -- and preparing to abandon, if necessary -- the thing that we have built is painful.
However, this is where we are at this point of time. What can you do?
Complain. Message the mods of /reddit. com, who are the admins of the site: message reddit : submit a support request: comment in relevant threads on /reddit, such as this one, leave a negative review on their official iOS or Android app- and sign your username in support to this post.
Spread the word. Discuss this on related subreddits. Suggest that anyone you know who moderates a subreddit join us at our sister sub at /ModCoord. Do NOT attempt to doxx, threaten, harass, or promote violence towards anyone.
Boycott and spread the word... to Reddit's competition! Stay off Reddit entirely on June 12th through the 13th: Instead, take to your favorite non-Reddit platform of choice and make some noise in support!
Don't be a jerk. As upsetting this may be, threats, profanity and vandalism will be worse than useless in getting people on our side. Please make every effort to be as restrained, polite, reasonable and law-abiding as possible. Thank you. We hope for a positive resolution in this matter. This is the hand that we must play.
Thank you.

2023.06.09 16:10 ThrowRA6184 Pregnancy scare.

Okay so here's my situation, I'm having a pretty bad pregnancy scare, im almost a week late, having plenty of symptoms that can also be related to my menstrual cycle, i know that i should have gotten my period already because me and my coworkers are synced up, and also whenever i usually have sex with my SO he usually makes my period come the next day or same night if its around my cycle, I been having some vaginal and abdominal pain, sore thighs, nausea even if im hungry or just ate, constipation, more intense hormones, I tested negative doing a pee test but in early pregnancy you more then likely won't find out until you're far much more along at least 1-4 months, if I'm estimating this correctly im only a couple days or 2 weeks at most, I've told my employer and she doesn't care and gave me a week to figure stuff out since I work at a fast food chain and it's mandatory to lift heavy things even though we have other pregnant employees, it's overall extremely frustrating, not the possibility that im pregnant but more of how much bullshit I gotta put up with at my job and everyone else is too lazy or high to lift the heavy things even though we have plenty of coworkers who are guys, that are more taller, and stronger then a girl of my frame. Anyway went off on a tangent any advice is welcome

Help! What's with the Sonos app??
Newbie here. So I've just finally taken the plunge and bought into the Sonos environment by purchasing a Sonos Era 300 speaker for the Dolby Atmos music experience.
The speaker is very nice but what the f**k is up with the Sonos App? It's almost unusable. It's slow, unwieldy and unreliable. It's constantly hanging, crashing, returning error messages and getting stuck. I'm force stopping and clearing the cache multiple times a day.
I'm sure it's not my phone or network and no other apps on my phone behave this way. I am using multiple services, including Apple, Amazon, YouTube Music, Bandcamp, Pocket Casts, Tune In, Mixcloud and Radio App, but that's the idea right?
I also have a bunch of Google speakers (7 in total) on the same network.
Is this just the Sonos experience or what's happening? Does anyone have any tips? How can an app so vital to the normal functioning of this speaker be so incredibly bad??

I was thinking about picking it up this weekend but I hate always online crap and feel that if I'm spending $70 on a game is should work and be playable without any issues. Even if it's just waiting in que for a few minutes is not acceptable to me. I'm guessing I'd be better off waiting a while still?

Ventura on 5900X + 6900XT @ MSI Gaming Plus

After a few hours of fiddling I got my setup working.
I've installed Gentoo and Arch before, but I think this one was definitely a bit more challenging than those. Fun nonetheless, especially when it all finally works.
I followed the EXCELLENT guide by Dortania, big props for that. Everything mostly worked out of the box even though there was some trial and error involved (mostly because I suck at reading).
I am getting a Fenvi FV-T919 PCIe WiFi/BT Adapter BCM94360CD to get Bluetooth working as well.
So far, the only thing that does not seem to work is my USB DAC (Topping EX5). The audio stutters, something I also encountered on Linux. To my surprise it also doesn't work on my M2 MacBook Pro. So, until Apple fixes the issue, I will connect to it through Bluetooth instead.
My webcam (Insta360 Link) works OK, it doesn't get its full resolution.

I leave late cause we got a meeting. Not with people you know, but you know i'll be bleeding when we get back. Can't find a reason to write you a text back, you'd look at our feelings and laugh. what happened to the past?
Are you alright? I just want someone to smile at us with kindness and not deceit, be able to accept without worrying about what we leave, behind. Our minds filled with different things, so we sit and write, and struggle to rhyme. I struggle to hide behind masks and lies, half-full of truth and our psyches- why do we hear so many versions of me crying? Out for my soul, out for my life. We don't wanna die but I'm too scared of being alive.
can i get a light? We can't stay out too late tonight. I tried to reason myself out of suicide, but the voices keep finding reasons why. They don't wanna exist trapped in one mind, and neither do I. that's why i'm almost always high, cause i'd rather swallow this bottle than take a bite of food. We can't eat if we're not in the right mood, and i always tried to tell you but for some reason its misconstrued. You think i'm a little weird, definitely not your average dude.
But we gotta make it work. I've always done my best to pull our roots from the dirt. i'm not putting out the best work, it and they and you and me and we and I could always be better, but that's the way life works. We gave you everything even when it hurt. We went out of our way make sure you're okay, but you treat us like dirt. don't even appreciate the ground that supports you, so what else can i do than give you what you deserve?
i'm sorry, I don't know man, we're feeling a little more crazy lately. everyone's getting hot and angry, i have to take a breather, baby. these people get on my nerves. I know i'm a little weird, listen, you don't wanna date me. you feel good but we're a little spacey, there's a lot of things to talk about, but everything's hazy, and I just wanna lay with you.

2023.06.09 16:10 raisingheaven The guy at church is giving me mixed signals.

I started attending a new church last year and within a few months of being there I noticed this really cute guy there always staring at me, smiling at me and making an effort to sit near me. Our church is big and I don’t like to assume, so I just thought maybe he was being friendly. He never talks to me but I always see him, and he volunteers sometimes in a separate department from me, and so I interacted with him in passing. It’s been almost a full year since I have attended the church, and recently I decided to try online dating apps. I started on a christian app and within literally less than an hour of my account being active this guy from church super-liked my profile. At first he pretended like he didn’t know we went to the same church, but I assumed he was playing it cool, because later he said he did see me at church. So we started talking and things were going well and he was even opening up to me about his life and things were great, he asked to connect on instagram to take things off the app. For reference I am in my late twenties and he’s in his late thirties.
We’ve been talking on IG for almost three weeks, and in that time he’s asked to meet at church to say hello, I find this a bit odd, I would expect him to want to meet in a dating context for coffee or somewhere outside church when we’re both not serving or in the service. However, I am open-minded. Two weekends have passed and he’s either not messaged me to meet in a place at church and messages me later apologizing after we don't connect, or he didn’t show up to church. He also takes anywhere from 12-24 hours to respond to a message, it feels like we are writing letters back and forth. I understand both of us work and have lives, but every other man that has shown interest in me makes an effort to text me a couple times a day at least and makes plans.
Finally, I responded to one of his messages and ended it with we should meet up sometime outside church. Maybe he’s shy or nervous so I gave him an opportunity. He has not read the message yet, but I am convinced he read it in airplane mode or something because he hasn’t responded to it in two days. He’s been posting on instagram stories, and watching all of my stories.
I find this odd behaviour for a christian man in his late 30’s that serves in the church and knows I do too. If he’s lost interest, changed his mind or met someone else, I would prefer if he would just be upfront with me and say that so I can continue dating intentionally and won’t feel uncomfortable at church. I don't typically like dating and entertaining multiple conversations with men at the same time.
I would love some insight and how to deal with this? Should I unsend my last message, and just ignore him if I see him on service weekends and church? Should I address it with him in a follow-up message? Should I leave my message and confront him in person? I find this so awkward. I don't want to have to pursue him but I also don't like leaving things unsaid. I am not an avoider.

2023.06.09 16:09 EternallyTidus A Fate Written Before Time - FF8 VW Ultima Weapon cap team - Dark element

Hello everyone :)
I finally managed to cap today myself and thought I'd share my setup. Upfront: I had been toying around with other ideas but finally went with the one u/Chipofthehead69 used which was based on one u/Resnaught shared. I never looked at any videos though so I'm not sure how similar my setup really is :)
I do not have the World Ender VC, am using 2x Sweet Friendship VCs though. If you do not have said VCs the team can still work but you'll have to adapt (-> chain Olive's SLB with Esther's LB on the kill turn; Rinoa's damage will suffer quite a bit though). The World Ender VC makes this a whole lot easier.

Team gear:
Ilmatalle - passive provoke + evade, a source of Nethicite, paralysis resistance; doesn't really matter how you achieve that, it's easy. EX level doesn't matter either.
Ibara - base form needs some help with MP as she will be using Bardarkja A LOT. BS form is just pure LB damage against machines. Mine is EX+2 (lvl 130).
Esther - now here's a build I never thought I'd share. Let me explain: Her base form is built to squeeze out the last bit of damage I could find. She did ~50 million which is... something (especially when you miss the cap by 32 million :> ). Her BS form is built specifically to have enough Spr to manage the incoming damage (my setup takes a little over 4k damage total). Both forms have at least 100% earth resistance.
Rinoa - base form Zidane's STMR + full LB fill (12 stones + as much LB fill rate as you can). BS form full magic damage against machines with Diabolos equipped. Mine is EX+1, her mag stat doesn't reflect properly on the builder (it's 1.5k too high, maybe counting the weapons twice?).
Dark Rain - laziest unit in this team. Full LB damage against machines.
Olive - full magic damage against machines.
While equipping for damage, the order of importance is Ibara > Rain > Rinoa > Olive.

Turn by turn:

Turn Ibara Rain Ilmatalle Rinoa Esther Olive Boss actions Seals needed
1 3x Bardarkja Guard Power to Destroy Nethicite I wanted to go with you! (Start in BS) Electromagnetic Shield + Storm Guardian + Energizing Bunny Brilliant Splash AoE Gravity (seal/reflect); 2x AoE Phys; 1x Fixed AoE Magic damage 1
2 3x Bardarkja Guard Power to Destroy Nethicite Singing Base LB Brilliant Splash AoE Gravity (seal/reflect); 1x AoE earth magic (reflect); 1x AoE Phys; 1x ST Phys 1
3 3x BS chain 3x BS chain Power to Destroy Nethicite Singing 3x BS chain (in base form) Whipped Cream Garden 2x ST Phys; 1x AoE non-elem Mag (seal), dispel (seal) 2 (or 1 and get dispelled)
4 Bardarkja + Wish of Vengeance + Endarkga (after Rinoa) Guard Power to Destroy Nethicite Base LB BS LB Guard AoE Gravity (seal/reflect); 1x AoE earth magic (reflect); 1x AoE Phys; 1x Fixed AoE Magic damage 1
5 Base LB One and Only Ruler Power to Destroy Nethicite Summon Diabolos Power to Destroy Nethicite SLB AoE Gravity (seal/reflect); 1x AoE Phys; 2x ST Phys; 1x AoE non-elem Mag (seal) 2
6 Bardarkja + Anun + Tsukiyo Elemental Burst - Dark + 2x Magic Boost+ 2x Machina Rune II (Olive + Rinoa) BS LB Power to Destroy Nethicite Breaks + killers + Fire Cannon Fire AoE Gravity (seal/reflect); 2x AoE Phys; 1x Fixed AoE Magic damage 1
7 BS LB SLB 2x Machina Rune II (Ibara + Rain) 4x Apocalypse Whipped Cream Garden Whipped Cream Garden
I hope that's readable when I'm done...
Three specific things I want to mention:
I willingly take the dispel on turn 3. I don't have anything up at that point that I need and it removes the earth imperil, making Esther's build easier.
I did all of this without macros. Turn 3 is my 100 chain turn, it's 3x triple BS + 1x quad BS, I never failed that. BS chains still the single best thing Gumi ever brought to the game. And as for timing Rinoa's Apocalypses: Count to four while she casts/flashes, then back down from 5 in the same rhythm (so 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1 - 0). Send Olive/Esther at 0, then Rain/Ibara right after. That way Rinoa's first hit lands around ~20 hits on the chain and the last one right at the end. It took me two or three tries to figure out the timing and it was pretty easy from there.
This does rely on variance. It took me exactly 20 tries to get a 18.47b roll (18.03b needed). Before that, I did have a 17.99b roll, too. So there is some leeway in the damage requirements but not a lot and any worse builds than the featured ones mean you'll need more luck.

If anyone has any questions on that, feel free to ask.
I hope this helps some more people cap this for the sweet 10k Lapis price :)

2023.06.09 16:09 Past_Ad_3187 Me (F25) and my boyfriend (M27) are in a disagreement on who’s in the wrong

English is not my first language, so please excuse any mistakes. My boyfriend and I have been together for 2.5 years and have been living together for the last year. A few weeks ago, I bought tickets for a concert that my BF wanted to go to. Yesterday, we went and it was great. The only problem was that we were a bit hungry from the beginning of the concert and there wasn't anything to eat. So we said we would go eat elsewhere after the concert ended. After the concert, we headed to a bar near our house that serves nice food. I wasn't that hungry because I was drinking (he was driving), but I had a nice time and didn’t want the night to end, it had been a while since we went on a proper date because we are both students. When we got there, there was a waiting list. My BF didn't want to wait because at this point he was starving, so we headed across the street to another place. They were closing, so my BF headed to Domino's. I told him I didn't want pizza, but he could go ahead and order, and I would just grab something when we got home. He offered to get something else for me that's not pizza, but I didn't want anything. It's worth adding that I was interested in getting something from those previous places because I like the food there. We eat pizza at least once a week because my BF loves pizza, but yesterday I wasn't hungry and just not in the mood for anything from there. When it was our turn to order, my BF ordered a large pizza and a meat sandwich (he is vegetarian, so it was obviously for me). I told him I didn't want anything and I wasn't going to eat it, but he didn't care. So I approached the lady who took his order and told her to cancel it. He told her to keep it, and we went on for an awkward minute. I took a chance and paid for the pizza just to make it over, only for him to place another order for a meat sandwich. I was so frustrated and furious because he was so stubborn and wouldn't listen to me, so I got out and started crying. When he came, he didn't understand why I was like this. I told him to stop thinking that he knows what's good for me better than I know. He said I was making a scene in front of people, that it was childish, and a new side of me that he hadn't seen. I didn't back down, and he said that I was walking on thin ice so I told him to break up with me…It wasn't pretty. We got the pizza and headed home. On the way home, I saw the events without a fight in my eyes, so I calmed down and was ready to talk about it. I don't remember what we talked/fought about when we got home, but it ended with him coming to hug me while I was crying. Today, I had to get up early to visit my parents (it was a planned visit), and we talked on the phone to clear the air. My BF thinks he did nothing wrong. He said that I overreacted and he wanted to do a nice thing for me. He didn't want me to have nothing to eat while we sat together and he ate. He also said that 80% of the time when I say I don't want to eat, I end up having a slice. I told him that it's true, but this was obviously not the same case because I was so clear that I didn't want it, and he could tell that. This is not the first time he has done something like this (I'm not going to get into the previous time, but it has to do with him meddling in my school work. He knows it was wrong on his part, and he took responsibility for it). I told him he was being controlling and toxic. He said that I'm influenced by my parents' relationship and that he is not like this. All he wanted was to give me something to eat, and sometimes in a relationship, people make decisions on their own, and he believed my reaction was way out of proportion. I agreed that it wasn't a big deal on its own, but it built up with all the other things. I wanted to know why he insisted on ordering that sandwich when he had a chance to drop it. I said it looked like he wanted to show me who is the boss, and after I pushed him for an answer, he said that he didn't want to give in in front of people and that it wasn't my place to meddle with his order in the first place because he was the one having the conversation and he was planning on buying it, so I have no say in it. We got to the part where each thinks he is right. He kept telling me to tell the story to an outsider so I can get some perspective. So, what do you think? Who is in the wrong here?

2023.06.09 16:09 False-Respond-1865 How to survive with toxic sister? I am devastated.

Hello, I am a 22 years old female. I have four siblings, 1 brother who is 1 year older than me and he has cerebral palsy (he is the blessing in our lives) and 3 elder sisters of which 2 middle ones are twins and the eldest one is married. So we sisters are in the field of medicine and all my elder sisters are graduated but I am the only one not graduated yet and we all are preparing for exams to pursue medicine in foreign countries and none of us is working at the moment. We all sisters live together in a house far away from our parents because of education and my parents can’t move with us because my father built his business in that small city 20 years ago so that he can support us for our future as we all are planning to move out of the country due to bad situation in general and it’s overall very expensive as we are 4 and foreign medical exams are super expensive hence my parents moving with us will totally ruin our financial status. So the problem here with us that we sisters fight a lot. Specially my middle twin sisters. Both of them are 26. My eldest sister is married but she is currently living with us because her husband is in another country so she is staying with us till she gets done with her exams and stuff. I basically study in a medical school which is in another city than my sisters or parents live in but I have summer vacations going on that is why I chose to live with my sisters for my vacations so that I can prepare for my exams as well. The problem with us is that we are happy in general with our studies and stuff but there happen to be a lot of fights between my sisters. Like I Just moved a few weeks back with them but the fights has been going on since we were kids. There are times that we are happy together but when the fights that happen are so big that they come to physical abuse. Mostly the fight includes one of my middle sisters who are twins. Let’s say she’s twin A. Now since we are growing up she has always been jealous of people like people whom she used to study with because they get higher grades and she always all the time says that people compare her with her twin sister Twin B. Twin A is average looking and average in grades and she generally fights with people and has no friends at all. While Twin B is pretty, slim, well mannered and have really good friends. Now all of my siblings I have been always told that I am the smartest one and I have good confidence and I have even travelled outside of the country few times alone hence I have good contacts and I am generally friendly with everyone but I am average looking. Now the comparison Twin A talks about is mostly with Twin B. It is with me as well but with Twin B is even with small things. Now for example if we have few people coming to our house and me and Twin B are usually talkative so if any person talks to me or talks to Twin B then Twin A throws tantrums that people always do that they talk to you and not to me they always do comparison. Twin A always says to Twin B that people talk to you because you are pretty. Now in general we belong to a good, decent family and we try to make things up. We always (specially me because she listens to me) to calm down the situation whenever we or they fight but the situation goes so much out of hand that Twin A starts verbal and physical abuse. Twin A beats Twin B. Twin B comes back with replies too but she never tries to defend herself. Twin A out of aggression would through phones or laptops or anything around her. I always say to Twin A that you are better in a lot of things in which Twin B and I are not and much more things like not everyone will talk to us but one time she would agree to me and then the other time she would start fighting again. Now let me go to little back story of Twin A. Twin A was good student in general when she was young. As twins they have always been with each other and even after all these years they are together because they are in the same profession and now preparing for the exams of the same country. Now Twin B was average in school back then but Twin A was very good but when the time of MCAT came, Twin B got selected and Twin A did not. Then Twin B got into a medical school in which she got selected because of good scores while Twin A did not get selected into the merit one due to very low scores in MCAT but there is system of self selection in my country where you would have to pay 4x extra money to get into a med school. As Twin A did not get selected she asked my father to get her into self selection one and then my father agreed she went into a 5 year medical school but the school was different from the one Twin B was into. Now when Twin A got into med school she faced a lot. She got diagnosed with religious OCD and we all sisters helped her through that we used to go with her to the doctor help her with stuff but the terms between Twin A and Twin B did not get any better. When Twin B got into med school on her own and she got separated from Twin A she saw a different perspective of life. She always said that she is glad she got out of Twin B’s negativity, comparison, jealousy and abusive environment. Twin A when she was in med school used to get into a lot of fights with people, she used to trust other people and give them money and she had a lot of issues with her roommates and people in the University as well. After 5 years both of them came out of their med school and started to live together because both are going for the same future path and they were living in the same city and it is generally not really safe for girls to live alone in my country and being from small city and being girls my parents are generally very much concerned about us. Now it has been 1.5 years since they have moved together there has been never a single day on which they had not fought. Twin B took her one foreign medical exam and passed although she started late then Twin A but she has to take 3 more however twin A has not taken any exam yet because she has not been prepared and she has very low confidence. But as I have 2 months off from my med school I have decided that I will be taking the exam as well so that I could get done it soon. Now Twin A and I have our exams in 1 month and Twin A is still not getting off of these fights and comparison and I am sick of it. My parents are not helping a lot because if they do anything Twin A then blocks them or goes out of the house without telling anyone or stuff like that. However we other three sisters are in good terms but Twin A always starts tantrums about comparisons when we never do comparison. If there is anything that I have then the same exact thing my other sister has. If I have been allowed to study for foreign exams then my other sisters are also given the same. But all this negativity and comparison is just killing my peace I mean I am already like dead and I have my exam in 1 month. We can not tell anything to my father because Twin A never listens to him and my father is already very stressed because we lost our grandfather a few months back. I don’t know where I should seek for help but it has been really hard for all of us. I just want to get done with my exams and move into another country and start earning but it will probably take me another 1.5 years. I don’t know what to do. We have tried therapy for my sister as well but none of it is getting better.

2023.06.09 16:09 InvestigatorSafe4100 I think my father's advice is ruining I(23M) and my gf(23F) relationship

Me and my girlfriend have been in a really good relationship for the past six months or so. This is someone I have known practically my entire life. There has always been something between us but we only recently started exploring it.
I kind of lost my old habits with women in the relationship and just went with the flow. Normally with women, I will keep busy, rarely give her any time, less compliments, less attention, etc... This is something I have found to work well for me practically every time before her.

Anyways, I decided to tell my father about our relationship and maybe how this is the woman I would like to marry. (He knows her well). He gave me a lot of good advice but also told me to do the things I said I had left behind, to give her less attention, less compliments, basically to never let her feel like I truly like her.

I have put the advice to use and it has since been ruining things. What used to be a fun relationship has just become a bit dull. She sends less and less pictures now. She told me before that she felt good in her body because I make sure she knows it. I am thinking the less compliments has something to do with that. There are other things that are not going well as a result of the change I have made.
People that have used 'game' tactics in dating would understand the advice and the practicality here. My question is 'why is it having the opposite effect with her?'
Where exactly do we go from here?

2023.06.09 16:08 kirilale DataAnalyst.com - I launched a niche job board with hand curated data analyst jobs. Here's the summary of how it's going after the fifth month

Hi all,
on Dec 19th I launched DataAnalyst.com - this is the fifth (May) update of hopefully many more to come.
Want to make sure I document the journey, and keep myself honest, so each month I will be making a post about the statistics, progress, some thoughts and what are the next steps I want to be focusing on.
While the main purpose for the post is to bring everyone along on the journey, I do think that members of EntrepreneurRideAlong might benefit from the site, especially those looking to start a new adventure and hoping to get insights into someone elses process.
So, just a reminder that early stages vision is to become the #1 job board for data analysts - hand-picking interesting data analyst job opportunities across industries.
Let's dive right in:

1. General Observations


DataAnalyst.com has been online for just over 5 months and we've brought over 1,250 hand curated data analyst jobs onto the site - all of them including a salary range.
There's now 1,200+ people subscribed to the newsletter, and I can't thank you enough for your support and for joining us on the journey.
While in April the site grew to just over 5,000 monthly visitors across 26,000 pageviews, in May we've been able to cross the 5,000 visitors yet again, with over 28,000 pageviews - not only that, we registered approximately 4,500 data analyst applications being started from the site!
Additionally, I've also had multiple people reaching out, both in comment section of my previous updates, but also in DMs, sharing that they have found the site to be extremely useful in their job search, and that they were able to get interviews and onboard new roles through the site - I absolutely love this, and even if the venture doesn't end up being commercially successful, I'm super happy to hear that it has indeed helped people when needed.
Google impressions are over 50% up, albeit the amount of people clicking through to the site remained flat.
On the positive note - the site has finally ranking for all the major target keywords:
"data analyst jobs / data analyst job / data analyst / data analytics jobs"
Pumped about this, as having multiple channels is crucial to long term growth and protecting the site and traffic from algorithm updates.

Things that happened

a) Expired Listings - There's feedback regarding some of the jobs on the site already expiring and leading to non-existing listings. I am trying to come up with a solution where visitors would be able to upvote/downvote and thus highlighting status for everyone else. For now, I went through job listings and marked those roles no longer open as "Expired".
b) Product Hunt launch - Early last month I decided to share DataAnalyst on Product Hunt. The idea wasn't necessarily to try and rank up to the top, but mainly get the site out there, and gain a backlink from ProduntHunt that's going to help the site's authority. Overall the voting process is extremely cumbersome, but we did end up with 36 upvotes which was more than I expected.

Expecting a summer slump

With summer, there's typically very little hiring happening / it's extremely slow as people are taking well deserved time off. I'm expecting activity on the site to decrease, and my main goal for this period is getting together a plan of action to start reaching out to companies in Q4 and Q1, educate them about the site, the value proposition and hopefully get a few partnerships on the books.
What that will look like, I honestly have no idea, but experiment, iterate and go again.
Some of you may have noticed that I've also recently launched BusinessAnalyst.com - where I'm looking to replicate step by step what I've done over the last 5 months with DataAnalyst. The overall idea is to create a network of sites, benefiting from the same infastructure, serving and helping different career paths, and making a collaboration with organisations much more appealing (afterall, most companies who hire for data analysts also look for business analysts and vice versa). Arguably, this might not make much sense seeing that DA still hasn't brought any revenue in, but on the other hand, I can reuse the whole tech stack and structures already in place, halve my cost per project, while doubling the surface area to catch me some luck. Anyways, how this will work out is a case study for another time.

2. The Salary Guide

On a monthly basis, we've been utilising the data available to developing and sharing Market Insights - a deep dive into the data analyst job market, where we can have a look at the job openings and provide you all with insights on the latest hiring trends in the United States.
With these insights I'm trying to bring answers to questions such as: Which industries are hiring the most? Are we seeing any salary increases? And what about the remote working trend?
With that in mind, I'm excited to share that the first five months of insights were consolidated, and the Salary Guide has now been published.
The data analyst salary guide provides the overview of salaries in various industries - and now also shows a more detailed view on each industry page, with a deep dive into how much entry level, senior and lead data analysts can earn depending on their experience.
This is only based on job opportunities on the site, and no external data sources are utilised. The plan is to have it updated quarterly, with the next update in September.
For the US, we've also released the May edition of Market Insights, you can see the full report here.

3. "Day in the Life" - a series of interviews with data analysts sharing their experience, thoughts and advice.

The third interview from our series has been published. In these interviews, we aim to share stories and experiences about the route to becoming a data analyst, keeping up with the skillset, recommendations to aspiring data analysts and much more.
Tisha, who is a data analyst at Tesla, has shared some fantastic insights, and I'd love to highlight couple of my favourite quotes from the interview.
On what she loves about being a data analyst:
"For me, the most exciting aspect of being a data analyst is the opportunity to unlock meaningful insights from vast amounts of data. I enjoy the challenge of uncovering patterns, identifying trends, and translating complex data into actionable recommendations. The ability to make a tangible impact on business outcomes and help organizations drive growth is incredibly rewarding."
On her advice for those aspiring to enter the industry, she shares 6 points that everyone should focus on:
  1. Acquire a strong foundation in SQL. This is an essential tool for data analysis and manipulation.
  2. Familiarize yourself with data analytics tools like Tableau, Power BI, or Alteryx. Demonstrating proficiency in these tools can enhance your employability.
  3. Seek out internships, projects, or volunteer opportunities where you can gain hands-on experience with real-world datasets and analytical challenges.
  4. Continuously enhance your skills by staying updated with the latest trends and best practices in the field. Online courses, webinars, and industry conferences can be valuable resources.
  5. Showcase your skills and projects through a portfolio or personal website. This allows potential employers to see your capabilities and the impact you can make.
  6. Network with professionals in the data industry through events, online communities, and LinkedIn. Building connections can lead to valuable opportunities and mentorship.
We've also touched upon the Question of the Year: Is AI/Chat GPT a threat to data analysts?
Highly recommend reading the full interview.
